Victorian 12L Czapka Plate
A scarce, brass, lance-cap plate for The 12th Lancers, with two screw fastenings (east and west). One nut remains intact. Some verdigris. As KK721 or Rowe & Carman 82/83.
Note: Rowe & Carman describe this as pattern E, showing the Central India battle honour (awarded in 1858).
Unfortunately, there is some damage to the bottom of the plate and a few pinholes (only visible when the plate is held up to the light). Priced accordingly.
